Fight fans were able to witness one of the boniest moves in recent memory Friday night (January 27, 2023) at BKFC 35 from inside the John T. Rhodes Sports Center in Myrtle Beach, SC, when a fighter celebrated a win to find out. he was already disqualified.
Mixed martial arts (MMA) veteran Tomar Washington made his Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC) debut on Friday in an undercard match against Willie Sears. Washington had a noticeable power advantage and ended up knocking Sears to the canvas in the second round. However, as Sears fell to one knee, Washington connected with a right hand deemed illegal by the ref. The fight was stopped, but Washington thought they had won by knockout.
Unfortunately for Washington, the referee planned to disqualify him for illegally hitting a downed opponent. Worse, Washington didn’t know he was disqualified until the referee read the decision out loud in the center of the ring. It was then that Washington knew he had made a stupid mistake and walked away in disgust.
Check out the illegal strike below along with Washington’s reaction after the fight:
My man put on a jigsaw mask and went to the referee for the announcement not realizing he lost by disqualification. BKFC blesses us with one of the all-time funniest moments in combat sports history tonight. pic.twitter.com/anAWoYIAI5

We’ve seen awkward happenings inside the cage and the ring over the years, but where does this rank among the rest? Celebrating with a jigsaw mask must make it scarier than it is.
